Fact sheet explaining toll manufacturer responsibilities under REACH


ECHA has published a new fact sheet explaining the concept of toll manufacturers and the responsibilities that they may have under the REACH Regulation.

Helsinki, 12 December 2013 – A toll manufacturer is normally understood to be a company providing manufacturing services (for a fee) to another company, on the basis of a contract for provision of those services. Although the REACH Regulation does not have specific provisions on toll manufacturing, toll manufacturers may have obligations under the Regulation. The new fact sheet briefly describes relevant REACH requirements that may apply to toll manufacturers. It also gives some initial advice on how compliance may be facilitated for toll manufacturers and for companies who are contracting others to toll manufacture on their behalf.
